It has been fun - I really appreciate it when peers are able to be respectfully critical of each other's ideas/actions. This kind of honesty does wonders for self-awareness and growth :)

I have to say, I love Burroughs' work. I read Junky in a couple days as I just couldn't put it down. Naked Lunch was my introduction to him and I thought of it as my "black bible" in part because the cover of the copy I had was completely black without any text on the outside. And then when you opened it up it was full of grotesque yet profound revelation about human nature and society in general...
